In the spirit of fearlessness, I took a chance and added paint. After months of work. A risk. My first reaction?
I hated it.
It was so different from what I saw slowly progressing. It jarred me. My heart sank. I wished for a real-life UNDO button. I felt like I ruined what was turning into a favorite piece in this series. All that time spent working on this, only to destroy it in seconds.
I put it aside for a few weeks. And then I opened the door again.
It's not so bad. In fact, I'm starting to love it. Paint is so... juicy. I can see where it's going again. The chance I took revealed a new, better direction.
Saturday I plan on getting back to this. More paint. More risks. More love/hate/love.
It's like life, isn't it?
